Las Vegas 1/2 marathon Report

Hi Everyone,

Well I did it and all went well

. I did not meet my 2:06 goal (2 year old PR) but I did finish in 2:11:20 , 137 out of 616 in my age group. Over 16,000 runners total with the full and half. We had Elvis runners which was really fun and couples getting married during the run. I felt great after the run and enjoyed my trip. We started in front of Mandalay Bay and ran down the strip with fireworks and then through Fremont street and ran back into Mandalay Bay down Industrial Way (not that much to look at). The biggest problem was the wind!! We had gust of 25 mph with a head wind. The New LVM has improved 100% from the run 2 years ago. They still need to make some improvements (more support for the 1/2 mar, more food, a lot better t-shirt, better mile markers), but overall I enjoyed the trip. I am just so happy to be running again I am okay that I didn't meet my time goal.

Way to go!!! Running with strong wind is tough. You should be very proud of yourself.

Congrats, shiraz!

The wind sure can be a beast. The race sounds really neat, running in Vegas without having to duck cabs, tourists, and drunk people must have been nice.
